Military tuition assistance

The failure to pay financial aid for active-duty service members during the shutdown is forcing some to withdraw from classes.

Since October 1, branches of the armed forces have not processed existing applications for military tuition assistance or authorized new requests. Military educational programs were not included in the law passed just before the shutdown that protects military pay from the shutdown. The Army said in a notice on its site that the tuition assistance program remains halted even though it ordered most civilian employees back to work over the weekend.
